Description: The Bath Arms at Crockerton on the Longleat Estate in Wiltshire is under the care of chef Dean Carr, formerly of The Ivy and Bishopstrowe House. Although The Bath Arms is a truly excellent gastropub, it’s clear that Carr respects country pub traditions. You can expect a warm welcome, open fires, relaxed atmosphere, beer garden, and familiar dishes. But you can also enjoy modern comforts, professional service, fine beers and innovative meals, too. Signatures include starter of fishcake with Cornish crab and broad bean and main course of sticky beef with braised red cabbage. Beer festivals, Caribbean BBQs and other events liven this picturesque corner.

Went without booking but despite being very busy we were given a table, bit of a wait for the food but it was excellent when it arrived, price was very reasonable, my fish cake on bed of minted broad beans with crab was very good and the veg was cooked to perfection, my partner had steak which was also well cooked and presented.

Living in south Wiltshire we have visited the Bath Arms many times, usually for family celebrations.
This time we decided on an evening out for no reason and booked a couple of days ahead.
As always on a Friday, the place is crowded, both in the bar and restaurant, so they must be doing something right.
The something right is definitely the food: two of us had the chicken dish, which was succulent and served with garlic butter, asparagus, champ and mixed vegetables, all well cooked.
My husband had the fishcake dish, which he said, could have done with a sauce to keep it moist.
Two of us shared the bread and butter pudding, which was excellent - light and served with a tangy marmalade and cream.
My husband had the homemade icecream.
The food is always of high quality, which you would expect given the restaurant prices charged.
What lets the place down is that the ambiance is not that of a restaurant: if you are unlucky enought to be seated in the back room (we were lucky to be in the central section) you are in a very uninviting space which would benefit from redecoration and extra heating.
The middle section is cosy, but some of the furniture does not match the tables: the banquettes, for example, are too low for the tables (thin cushions are provided).
The bar had run out of ginger beer and did not have a Chardonnay wine in stock.
The service is always good and the staff knowledgeable, although there are often not enough of them on duty. This was not a problem on Friday.
We shall return as the food is good, but not as frequently as we might because of the prices.

Have never been to the Bath Arms before and my family and I were looking forward to lunch there. It was very busy, with the staff clearly stretched. The table was not ready and we had to wait for half an hour to be seated. It then took fifteen minutes (and some chasing) for our order to be taken. The food was very good but our experience was sadly let down by the poor service (and not even a hint of an apology).
